I don't know exactly how to check settings in Ashampoo, but you might want to change the burn speed. Your program is probably defaulting to the maximum speed of the burner, but I've always had best results with audio CDs by burning them slowly -- I usually set the burner speed for no faster than 8X.

Anyway, this is something you should be able to try without getting new software or hardware.

I once had a similar issue,and in my case, if I listened to the song,immediately before dragging to burn,

my burner would go through the motions, and nothing on the CD when finished.

Only the songs not listened to first,burnt.

Thought it worth mentioning.

I hope I didn't sound like I was dismissing your solution -- that wasn't my intent.

I'd stick with slow writing and CD finalization, gives best results in most cases

Well, that's a bummer!

TDK is a good brand, but even good brands can get a bad run so it's possible that you really do have some bad discs. If you can get a blank CD from another reputable brand you might try that, but at this point I wouldn't invest in a big stack. Beyond that, not all brands of blank CD-Rs are universally compatible with all makes of CD drives, so that may still be the problem.

The other possibility would be the drive. If you're lucky it might just be dusty in there and you can clean it with a little air. Use an air bulb or a can of compressed air to gently blow air into one side of the drive opening in short, gentle puffs. If you use a can of compressed air, be sure to hold the can upright in a vertical position -- you do not want any liquid refrigerant to get into the drive. Also, if you use a can of compressed air, be especially careful to use quick puffs -- the air stream will become increasingly cold and you don't want to chill the drive. (I personally use an air bulb I got in the baby care section of a big discount store -- and I use it as infrequently as possible.) Give it a few minutes and then try to burn another CD.

I personally don't use a commercial CD cleaning disc -- they're usually marketed for home CD and DVD players, and the drive in your computer can spin a lot faster than most of those drives.
